as some of you know i have had a case of the "sads" (aka bummin'-aka depressed). maybe it is the weather, maybe it is the workload, maybe the economy, maybe i need to feel complimented as the saying goes rather than pissed that hard work becomes mimicked in blatant fashion...maybe it is everything in a hard to swallow taquito. even blogging has been something that i dont want to do as much as i love sharing information.
Patchwork Santa Ana, has grown so much over the past few years...this past show has brought me such pleasure not only seeing the record numbers turn out for the event, but really remembering 2 people-an aunt (me) and her niece (nicole of random nicole), sitting in a backyard in Irvine talking of manifesting a dream of her niece to have a craft fair in Orange County of all places.
my niece Nicole is more like a sister. in fact when people finally meet her they are shocked that this person i have talked about is really the same age...in fact we are. only 5 months apart (please ask us for a family graph-this is our running joke!) we have always been raised close to each other and have spent our lives having a connection that is so similar to a dear friend from school. you know: may have not seen for a while, but as soon as you see them, you go back into your normal "way" of how you were back in the day...we just know each other.
our family heritage of OCD and workaholic nature really came to fruition this past sunday when our 5th installment of this dream not only took place, but rocked the kasbah as i like to say it. i may have been running around like a sweaty-dirty-crazy person, but i do it for a dream that has not only enriched and inspired my community and friends but truly makes me believe that when you put your mind to it- dreams really do come true.
(livin' the dream)
the sweaty-dirty-crazy person slept on the floor with her dirty-a** feet for 36 hours in the same clothes, no shower after another successful event-VIVA LA PATCHWORK!
